SHAG Haunted Mansion 40th Anniversary Artwork event is tomorrow Sunday August 9th at Disneyland !

I repost this previous article about SHAG Haunted Mansion 40th Anniversary artwork and collectibles as tomorrow Sunday 9th of August is the "D" day at Disneyland! From 10 am to 1pm this sunday, SHAG will be at Main Street Cinema to sign the items previouly purchased at the Disneyana Shop. If you don't live in L.A and are interested by some of the items below, i remind you that you very probably can order them through the Disneyland mail order service.

A bit more about this even from the official release: "Artist SHAG will be on hand for a special meet & greet and signing opportunity as we celebrate the release of his "Haunted Mansion" inspired artwork created in commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of the Haunted Mansion attraction at Disneyland® park. Represented in the artwork are some of the attraction's most beloved scenes, including the Stretching Portraits, the Ballroom, the Seance Room, the Attic, Graveyard, among others. This unique collection is a must have for any SHAG and Haunted Mansion enthusiast."

The marriage of these two couldn't be closer to heaven for me! I'm a Halloween/Haunted Mansion freak and a long time fan of Shag.

Disney was genius to link the two.

And while I would love one of everything, I found the lantern, which isn't being sold, on ebay! I chose that to be my prize.
